Axel Fire contained

By July 12, 2017

Cal Fire officials reported yesterday afternoon that the Axel Fire between Rescue and Coloma is 100 percent contained.

The fire started Saturday and scorched 74 acres. Cal Fire previously reported that 100 acres burned but that number was revised Monday afternoon due to better mapping, fire officials said.

No structures were damaged or destroyed and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
